Melbourne, This Time: Somali Man With Violent Criminal History Shot Dead By Police After Taking a Hostage and Shouting "This is For ISIS, This is For Al Qaeda"

He killed one man and injured three cops.

He had previously been charged with planning a terrorist attack on an Australian military base -- but was acquitted.

And then there's this:

A man reportedly called the local Channel 7 newsroom during the siege to say "This is for IS, this is for Al-Qaeda".

That's so hard to read.

Victoria Police statement said they are investigating whether the incident is terrorism related.

The Independent reports police will disclose the man's identity and motivation at a more appropriate time.

In fact, the Independent seems to try to give credence to the "his motive may never be known" claim by claiming that Al Qaeda and ISIS never work together. The implication being, this guy couldn't possibly be telling the truth.

Here's an idea: Maybe he has no particular preference for either group, but adheres to the animating spirit of both: the Islamist conquest of non-Islamic societies through blood and fear.

So another case of police and media saying the Islamist terrorist's motive may never be known, despite him shouting his motive to the world, and in fact having been previously tried for planning a terrorist attack.
